And the funny part is there’s no human form involved – instead Nissan has decided to offer a glimpse of the creation process of the upcoming electric crossover, with a twist at the end.
The Japanese automaker is eagerly expecting the arrival of October 25, because that’s when the Tokyo Motor Show kicks off and they’re going to unveil in full the electric crossover they’ve been planning, reportedly on the basis of the second-generation Leaf. We’re pretty sure that wrapped in this partially technical, partially tongue-in-cheek teaser is the make’s most important introduction at its home show. Previous teasers have shown the new vehicle to be the promised electric crossover that shares the architecture of the all-new LEAF hatchback.
And this is important – because as far as electric SUVs are concerned, the market is lacking them almost altogether. Sure, we have the Tesla Model X and up and coming attempts such as the Bollinger B1 truck, but let’s face it, a Nissan electric crossover on the basis of the new Leaf has the game-changer potential from one major standpoint – price. Back to the teaser at hand, a pair of robots in a factory is 3D sculpting a white model – and while at the end we don’t see the finished work, we do get a glimpse into what happens when humans leave for home – the disco stage is set for… dancing.
